    Best Practices Guide for Shark and Ray Tourism Now Available

    The guide, Responsible Shark and Ray Tourism: A Guide to Best Practices, was released on the 3rd March to coincide with UN World Wildlife Day. Project AWARE, WWF and the Manta Trust collaborated to produce the guide, which they say is the world’s first practical guide for operators. It was designed with tourism operators, NGO’s and communities in mind to assist them to develop and maintain well managed shark and ray tourism operations and to raise awareness of the need to protect endangered species. The guide consists of a suite of tools including posters, scorecards and checklists.

    Information for divers
    The guide is aimed at organisations and operators, however there is a host of information that responsible divers should familiarise themselves with prior to your next diving holiday. Were you aware that you should not wear sunscreen when shark cage diving? How close should you swim towards manta rays or sharks? Do you know that mantas have a blind spot and you should not approach them from behind so you do not scare them? Are you familiar with where you should position yourself when at a manta cleaning station? All these questions and more are answered in the guide.

    Representatives from the Manta Trust and WWF offered some insight into the thought behind the creation of the guidelines. Isabel Ander, from the Manta Trust, shared her view on the guide’s focus on operators. “Lack of best-practice guidance can often leave operators confused about how to assess the impact and improve the sustainability of their operation,” she added, “we sought advice from scientists and the industry to help bridge that gap and deliver a best-practice guide – the first of its kind in the world.” “Shark- and ray-focused eco-tourism has great potential as a conservation strategy,” said Dr Andy Cornish of WWF. “If properly designed and managed, it can provide alternative direct and indirect economic benefits to local communities and economies. Yet sadly there’s limited practical guidance out there.”

    Planning a Palau Dive Holiday? Learn About the Palau Eco Pledge

    Is Palau on your radar as your next liveaboard diving holiday destination? Then be prepared to sign their Eco Pledge at immigration in order to obtain entry.

    Palau, for your liveaboard diving vacation

    Palau, for your liveaboard diving vacation

    This small island nation has a history of being serious about protecting their natural resources.

    • 2009 the world’s first shark sanctuary was created in the archipelago
    • 2015 the nation moved towards protecting 80% of its maritime territory as a fully protected marine reserve and created the Palau National Marine Sanctuary. The sanctuary protects marine life in a vast area of almost 500,000 square kilometres.
    • 2017, Palau President, Tommy Remengesau, appealed to the attendees at the United Nations Oceans’ Conference. He proposed that they should commit to protecting 30% of the world’s oceans under a Global Marine Sanctuary Network by 2030.

    President Remengesau has once again turned his attention on how best to preserve his beautiful homeland. The tiny Pacific nation boasts crystal clear waters, pristine coral reefs teeming with fish life and is considered to be one of the world’s best diving spots.

    Saving the Green Sea Turtles on Australia’s Raine Island

    A little known island plays a very important role in the survival of green sea turtles. Sir David Attenborough: “A marine paradise that plays host to one of the most spectacular ocean migrations on the planet. This is Raine Island…”

    rain-island-green-turtles_image-courtesy-of-andrew-dustanRaine Island (situated on the outer edges of the Great Barrier Reef, North Queensland), is a unique and important nesting site for green turtles. As many as 60,000 female green turtles make the journey from their feeding grounds to lay their eggs on this tiny island. During the nesting season it is one of the world’s largest populations of green turtles. They swim from as far afield as Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, the Torres Strait and the West Pacific.

    Unfortunately this annual event is under threat. Both adults and eggs are dying. Rising sea levels have caused tidal inundation, killing the newly laid eggs that cannot survive underwater. The island’s landscape has also changed resulting in as many as 2,000 adult deaths annually from falls and entrapment in rocks. This situation has added to the other threats, such as pollution, habitat loss, boat strikes and over harvesting, which contribute to them being endangered.
